Three services for better health
Mercy Home Health offers a wide range of services, including:
- Skilled nursing. A nurse will assess your health, provide treatment and education after a hospital stay, or assist you in managing a chronic condition such as diabetes, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease or congestive heart failure.
- Physical therapy. Most home health patients benefit from therapy to help them get stronger after an illness or surgery. A physical therapist can help you use equipment—such as a cane or walker—that may have been issued in the ER.
- Occupational therapy. Therapists can help you adjust to a health condition by teaching you new ways of doing daily activities at home—for example, after a stroke, a surgery or any other condition that affects your ability to be independent with dressing, bathing and food preparation.
